Children’s Home Society Workshops

The Participants:

Children’s Home Society, West Palm Beach, Florida, USA

The Project:

Twice a week, Blue Planet leads creative workshops with the teenagers living in the shelters at Children’s Home Society in West Palm Beach. Teen mothers, runaways, and youths who have been abused, neglected, or are at risk take part in creative writing and drama workshops led by a teaching writer and a teaching artist. The teens get to write stories and poetry, play writing games, learn about improvisation and theatre technique, and engage in lots of fun, expressive activities that enable them to showcase their creativity and allow their artistic voices to be heard.
